The Threat to American Democracy
How are votes counted? What are the weaknesses in the current democratic system? Is a loss of confidence in the electoral system the greatest threat of all? Through this five-part series for BBC Radio 4, Owen Bennett-Jones faces the reality of post-“Stop the Steal” American democracy head-on. In the lead-up to the 2024 presidential elections, we uncover the truth about how vulnerable this system really is – from Russian interference to gerrymandering, to cyber-attacks and conspiracy theories.
